LEICESTER, Mass. — Áine Minogue will bring her traditional Irish music to the Hezekiah Stone's Coffeehouse on Nov. 1, continuing the Leicester venue's line-up of musicians.
With producer Tim Mason drawing a number of well-known musicians from across the country, for years Hezekiah Stone's Coffeehouse has continued its mission to provide an affordable evening of live entertainment that builds community while also supporting the arts.
November’s performer, Áine Minogue, is an Irish musician, vocalist, folklorist and lecturer.
Born in County Tipperary, Ireland, Minogue's large musical family encouraged her to pursue a number of different instruments during her youth, and together they played at fleadhs (traditional music festivals). At the age of 12, however, Minogue discovered her true love – the harp.
Since then Minogue's has performed all over the world, taking her harp before prime ministers and presidents. Now a New England resident, she brings her love of traditional Irish music to Leicester for an evening of Celtic tunes.
Doors will open at 7 p.m., with the show starting at 7:30 p.m. A post-show artist reception and conversation is hosted at 9 p.m.
With shows on the first Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. through spring, the lineup will feature a variety of veteran musicians on the local, regional and national singer-songwriter circuit.
Christ Church is located at 1089 Stafford St., Meadow Lane, Rochdale. For more information and tickets, visit Hezekiah Stone’s website.
